Vatican Seeks to Thwart Ex-Auditor General’s Lawsuit

National Catholic Register, Edward Pentin:

The Vatican is seeking to turn the tables on its former auditor general and his deputy after they sued the Vatican for $10 million for unlawful dismissal, and threatened to reveal extensive financial misconduct they discovered during their curtailed five-year tenure.

Libero Milone, a top-flight auditor whom the Vatican hired in 2015 as its first auditor general, and his former deputy, Ferruccio Panicco, are suing the Holy See  for “breach of contract, damage to reputation and moral damage to us and our families.” Report is here.
